View Full Version here: : First webcam imaging
29-05-2012, 11:42 PM
Well today I took my first webcam images of the moon, note this is a daytime image I still need to adjust the setting on the webcam Agent V5 (home modification, by removing the focus lens). The result is a prime focus mosaic of 5 AVI captures stacked to form stills and then photo-merged in CS5. You can tell that the AVI's were taken at different resolutions by the graining along the dark edge, I'll know better for next time.

how difficult is it to get the stitching to work? I have never tried it but have always thought about it for deep sky situation (I'm a long way from there yet).

I was no problem at all the original images where exported as BMP. files. I simply opened them up and did a photo merge in PS CS5. I can see now that I could have had conflict given the different resolutions but I didn't encounter any. I did no further editing other then a small crop from the edges. Way to simple. From my limited experience stitching tends to work well with this kind of broad detail. Give it a shot.
Nice shot Steve. I recently did a similar thing. I was actually surprised how much fun it is.
